Photographer's Note

1592/5000
The church dedicated to Sant'Anna is located in the district of Stampace in Cagliari. The fašade, built in Piedmontese baroque style, is preceded by a wide staircase and is characterized by two imposing square-shaped bell towers, behind which there are three domes of different shape and height. Bordered by corner pilasters, it is divided horizontally into several orders by more or less protruding frames and vertically by pilaster strips and columns, culminating in a tympanum area. It is characterized by an alternation of solids and voids, of parts in relief on the sides, opposed to a large concave area placed centrally. In the latter, a large framed and architraved portal opens, surmounted by a lunette. In line with it, in the upper part of the fašade, we find a large oculus, flanked and surmounted by volute decorative motifs. The interior is distinguished by a single nave, vaulted by an octagonal dome. There are also four side chapels.

Decorative elements

The large presbyterial area is characterized by columns and pillars. It houses the wooden high altar, on which is placed a statue of St. Anne of the first half of the twentieth century, surviving the bombing that destroyed the church instead.

Structure

Single room with a presbytery area raised above the rest of the church paving. The walls and vaults are white; this data creates an effect of great brightness.

Covers

The roof of the church dedicated to Sant'Anna is given by the three domes which are of different heights and diameters.
